Whether you’re looking for a memorable gift idea or just want to treat yourself, you’ve probably put jewellery at the top of your wishlist. As you know, jewellery is available in various formats, styles, colours and shapes.

These days, you can walk into a jewellery store, pick something you like, and have it sized to your specifications. The trouble with that approach is you end up with jewellery that other people will also wear.

If you want to choose something more unique, either for someone special in your life or yourself, you need to look at custom jewellery. Take a look at the following five reasons to opt for unique, custom jewellery instead of off-the-shelf examples:

1. You Want Something Unique

Firstly, one of the most significant reasons for getting custom jewellery is that it’s unique. What you don’t want to do is buy some jewellery, either for yourself or someone else, and see a copy of your prized possession being adorned on a total stranger!

Unique jewellery means you’ve had a custom, one-off piece made to your design specifications. There won’t be anyone else wearing what you’ve got, assuming your design isn’t a copy of something else, of course!

2. You Want A High-Quality Product

You may have read some Helzberg diamond reviews online and decided you’d like to have a ring made from such diamonds. As you can appreciate, a ring using high-end diamonds would need to be flawless in virtually every way.

Another advantage of having jewellery custom-made for you is that you can choose a designer-maker that provides a high-end service. These people might charge a premium for their work, but it’s fully justified when you see the end result of their creations!

3. You Want Affordable Jewellery

You might think that custom-made jewellery will cost an absolute fortune, judging by the previous few paragraphs you’ve read. However, such unique jewellery doesn’t have to break the bank.

For example, you could commission a jeweller to create a lovely set of earrings for the lady in your life or some shirt cufflinks for the gentleman in your life. Custom-designed and made jewellery doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

4. You Want Each Item To Have Sentimental Value

Do you want to have some custom jewellery that isn’t just unique but will also hold sentimental value? Perhaps you’d like to gift someone to the one you love, or a close family member that will cherish your gift for years and decades to come?

Unique, custom-made jewellery can hold sentimental value. For example, you might have a necklace that can pass down to future generations.

5. Custom Jewellery Incorporates Personal Style

Lastly, when you play an instrumental role in designing the jewellery you wear, you can incorporate certain style elements into your designs. For example, if you are a nature lover, you could have a silver necklace made with inspiring leaf patterns to promote that fact!

The beauty of custom-made jewellery is that you’re in charge of the design aspect and can incorporate almost anything into your designs based on your fashion style and interests.







How to Cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms

I wrote about my issue with changing rooms in stores some weeks ago, and I was pleased to find that many other women struggled with trying on clothes in dreaded changing rooms. The discovery wasn’t surprising to me at all. I knew I wasn’t the only one avoiding store changing rooms. If you Google up “Dreaded Changing Rooms”, you will find many articles on this issue. Which is why I am writing this post on how to cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms, if you find yourself there.

Go for the inner changing rooms

My main issue with the changing rooms is my fear that someone would stumble in mistakenly or deliberately. The curtains also do not provide enough privacy. I find that there are usually little gaps at each side which is why I like to go for the inner changing rooms for a bit more privacy and security.

 

Be realistic

My first tip when it comes to surviving the changing room is to be realistic. Select clothing that would suit your body shape and make sure they come in the right size. There is no point for you to pick a size 12 dress if you are a size 8. The dress would never look good on you. Also, the fact that the skirt looks amazing on the shop assistant does not mean it would look good on you. Go for styles that would complement your figure.

Being realistic in the changing room is a way to make the process a lot easier.

 

Walk around in the pieces

Before you decide on whether you are buying the pieces, make sure you sit down and walk around in it. That way you would get an idea of how the clothing would look and feel on a regular day for you. Also, you sitting down is a way for you to take your time and have a good look before you decide on whether to buy or not. What looks good standing up may look horrible when you sit down. That dress that looks lovely when standing up may look tight and off when you sit down.

The last thing you need is to rush when trying on clothes. You are in the changing room already, you may as well take your time.

Give yourself a 360

I know many of us struggle with the mirrors in the changing rooms. It could be due to the lightning and the type of mirrors used but you need to give yourself a 360 when trying on clothes. Using the mirrors would help you see the whole outfit from all angles so you get no nasty surprise when you are out and about in your new piece.

 

These tips do work for me when I have to deal with the dreaded changing rooms. I like to avoid changing rooms as much as I can which is why I go for online shopping, but when I have to go into the shops, these tips come in handy.

How do you cope in changing rooms? Do you have any tips that work for you? Please share them in the comments section below.

Summer is here and it is now time to think of summer shopping, but the weather feels and looks like autumn!

Last summer was an exception. We were spoilt rotten, but back to reality now. The fact still remains  that this is summer, so if you are in need of some summer shopping finds to buy, you may like this post.
